Bath on Wednesday confirmed that Stuart Hooper will continue as the club’s captain for the 2013/14 season.

An integral member of the squad, Stuart, who made his 100th appearance in the Blue, Black and White last season, is a natural choice for the armband, and will head up a core group of leaders within the squad, as Gary Gold, Director of Rugby, explained.

"Stuart is a consummate professional, both on and off the pitch, and is the embodiment of the standards we expect of all the players here at Bath. His work ethic is second to none, he's a very intelligent player and he talks very well. His leadership qualities are unquestioned, and he has the utmost respect of all the players and staff at the club.

"We are fortunate to have some very strong leaders within the squad, with the likes of Rob Webber, Dave Attwood, Peter Stringer, Francois Louw and Paul James. They, along with Stuart, will form our leadership group for the season, making sure that the high standards we set ourselves on and off the pitch are met."

Hooper said: "I am of course delighted and honoured to be asked by Gary and the coaches to captain Bath for another season. We have a very exciting squad here that I am very proud to lead, and we are all looking forward to getting out on the pitch and getting the season underway."
